Command Line Syntax
GDS_Extents is command line driven. The syntax is described below:
gds_extents input_file output_file top_struct input_layer_set [options] where gds_extents path and filename of the executable "gds_extents" input_file is the input GDSII file to be analyzed. Use path if the file is not located in the current directory output_file is the base output filename - gds_extents can generate multiple output files (if more than once cell is specified) so this base name is used along with additional characters to provide a unique output file name. top_struct normally the top level structure of the input file. However a use may specify any structure in the input file as the starting point. If you do not know the name of the top level structure use the "=" character to indicate you want the program to determine the top level structure. input_layer_set use the "=" character to indicate that all layer data should be used when computing cell extents. If you want to use only specific layers then list them using a comma delimited list such as 1,2,3 options -cell_extents <cell_list> where <cell_list> is a comma delimited list of cell names or @<filename> where filename is a text file containing one cell name per line -gds create gds file output instead of an ascii output -text include TEXT to extent calculation. If this option is not present then by default any text insertions are ignored when computing extents. -window:x,y,X,Y analyze windowed data only
